Joe Murphyportfolio Filterable map

A screenshot of a map marked with mass shootings in the last five years

Readers can filter and permalink the mass shootings map by location and severity of the shooting.

This map uses custom javascript to ingest a regularly-updated JSON file and publish the information on a map of the U.S.

There is also custom javascript to let readers permalink any of the filtered maps, for easy sharing.

What I did

I worked with the designer-developer on the interactive team, who wrote the CSS and HTML.

I contributed:

  • Custom javascript that managed the map and the form that readers used to explore the data.
  • Documentation, including putting together the workflow for the monthly project updates.
